Exclusive Beringer Winemaker’s Dinner with Laurie Hook – April 14 – Ottawa

Exploring Regional Estates with Beringer


Since 1876 Beringer has been a pioneer in California winemaking and for more than 30 years, Winemaker Laurie Hook has walked the vineyards of Beringer. From this intimate experience, these wines are born from a desire to highlight the most remarkable of vineyard lots. Join Laurie at SIDEDOOR in Ottawa on April 14 for a tasting that showcases the volcanic, cobbled rock and alluvial soils of Knights Valley, the highest elevations of Napa’s Howell Mountain and the sun-drenched valley floor of Napa’s Oak Knoll district. Laurie will be joined by WineAlign’s Rod Phillips.
